The Systems Approach: An Emerging Behavioral Model for Vocational Guidance. A Summary Report. Research and Development Series No. 45.
Campbell, Robert E.; And Others
The primary purpose of this project was to develop a procedural model for improving vocational guidance programs in senior high schools. Using a systems approach, the model: (1) emphasizes student behavioral objectives, (2) gives alternative methods for accomplishing these objectives, (3) provides program evaluation strategies, (4) incorporates guidelines for program change adjustments, and (5) can be operationally demonstrated in pilot locations and subsequently replicated in other locations. The 10 procedural phases of the model were developed over a 2-year period in cooperation with a comprehensive high school, although the basic model is flexible enough for use at many levels such as the state guidance system or local school systems. Each phase is independent, allowing the adoption of the combination best suited to individual needs. A revised model will be published following extensive field testing. (BH)
